England is unlikely to change their winning combination.

For India, Virat Kohli will lead the side after MS Dhoni resigned as captain of the ODI and T20 team. Yuvraj Singh has been the star in the team after his blistering 150 runs in the ODI series.

Despite its strong batting line-up, the Indian batsmen managed to score just 147 runs batting first in the first T20 which exposed its unpredictableness in adapting to various conditions. The England batsmen managed to chase the score with ease.

Their skipper Morgan led the side beautifully and remained unbeaten at 51 runs to get his side the first win in the series.
